Recently, Ebola has made a resurgence in West Africa, with a total of over 600 cases now reported in the Democratic Republic of Congo. As a direct result, an American healthcare worker is currently being monitored in Nebraska after possibly being exposed to the virus while treating patients in Congo.
As part of its continuing webinar series, Continuity Insights will present, The Invisible Threat – Planning for Infectious Disease Outbreaks & Epidemics. The topic will be presented by Suzanne Bernier, President of SB Crisis Consulting, on Thursday, January 31, 2019.
Adding the Ebola resurgence to the new case of Middle East Respiratory Syndrome (MERS-CoV) found in South Korea just a few months ago, as well as recent measles and influenza outbreaks across North America, it’s clear the threat of a possible infectious disease outbreak or epidemic within our own community or workplace is a constant reality. In addition, new and emerging health threats, along with increased global travel, show we are still vulnerable to a possible pandemic that could be far worse than H1N1.
This webinar will review recent, emerging, and residual infectious disease threats, as well as case studies and lessons learned from SARS and H1N1. Attendees will then be led through a review some of the key elements required for an effective infectious disease plan, as well as recommended enhancements to those plans based on case studies and lessons learned.
Key takeaways will include:
– Knowledge and insight into new and emerging viruses of concern across the globe
– Lessons learned and case studies from SARS and the H1N1 pandemic to help you enhance your current infectious disease plans
– Additional tools and guidance to support your infectious disease planning efforts
The webinar will begin at 2:00 p.m. EDT and will allow time for audience participation and Q&A. Register free for The Invisible Threat – Planning for Infectious Disease Outbreaks & Epidemics here.
